We need you to research what a utility patent application in the USA looks like.

The final product should be a document that describes a) What are the key components of a patent application in the USA and b) a brief description of what goes into each of these key components. Please link any sources and resources you used. We expect you to spend a maximum of two hours on this task - if you finish in less than two hours thats fine, but do not spend more than two hours.
